Does anyone have a list of the feature-length films made before _The Birth of a Nation_?  IMDb doesn't permit excluding short films in its power search option.  These are what I came up with off the top of my head...

The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Fight (Enoch J. Rector, 1897) 90+ min.
The Fairylogue and Radio-Plays (Francis Boggs, Otis Turner, 1908) 120 min.
Quo Vadis? (Enrico Guazzoni, 1912) 120 min.
Cabiria (Giovanni Pastrone, 1914) 162 min.
The Patchwork Girl of Oz (J. Farrell MacDonald, 1914) 85 min.
The Magic Cloak of Oz (J. Farell MacDonald, 1914) 85 min.
His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz (J. Farrell MacDonald, 1914) 85 min.
The Last Egyptian (J. Farrell MacDonald, 1914) 100 min.
Judith of Bethulia (D.W. Griffith, 1914) 61 min.
